with civil rights of the '60s. >> host: john is from illinois now. john is an independent. hi there. >> caller: hi. mr. johnson, the only problem i have is about the tax issue. and the reason why it's like -- the reason why i say that is, our taxes in this country have never been set at actually to be fair. what they were set up for originally was that the rich were supposed to pay the majority of their taxes in federal taxes, and the working class and the poor were supposed to pay most of -- the majority of theirs in home owners taxes, city and state taxes. and that has been all -- it's got everything out of sorts. my problem with what everybody calls a fair tax is, when you're on a fixed income, and these states are going to have to have such a high tax rate because the federal government is going to have such a lower one, that when anybody that is on a fixed tax rate goes in and buys a refrigerator, they cost $400, the lowest one they can buy, they have about $100 tax on the refrigerator. that is the problem. and the only ones it's going to hurt is people that are retired, people

leadership. can john boehner at the time is running for reelection of its leaders say, i'm going to make a deal with barack obama to include retracting? >> that's a good question. so i was informed recently of a conversation that a leading plater on tax, who is now on k street, but his background is more on the democratic side with the counterparty on the republican side. the conversation will have to cave on taxes because john boehner can't move his caucus before january 1st, but once he gets really did that is what will have to happen. i think for many of us, we see this as a prescription to never get anywhere. the hope is that after the election the discussion proceeds in such a fashion that there can be agreement in december. but i think the very point you mentioned is one of the reasons why i believe it is more likely that we would get a deal in january than in december for precisely the point you just mentioned about honor and the elections and house. the mac let me broaden the elections. i should state more clearly. the bottom-line question is what does it take the house republica

of a sensational trial had a lot of allegations about judge john walker to district court judge tried to publicize, getting shut down after trying to do that and questions to the propriety of sitting on the case for how he managed to the case. he ultimately ended up coming down to no great surprise is a very broad ruling, finding basically same-sex marriage was mandated by the constitution, so not merely -- [inaudible] >> the right to same-sex marriage. [laughter] that states must under the protection clause allow for same-sex marriage cursor destroy would be brought. if he is right, every state now cannot define their marriage only between a man and a woman. the ninth circuit took that case and came up with a much more narrow ground of which it looks to me as also uniquely tailored to appeal with justice kennedy. judge reinhardt broke a two to one decision upholding it and he basically says, we are not even going to address whether this is a rational basis scrutiny as a matter of itself, but once you have a state where there is a law that already says it's on the books that says you eliminate tha

, you blame the president for congress. i didn't hear you say anything about john boehner. since when does business every guarantee? business is always a risk. so if you're not willing to take the risk, let someone else do it who's willing to take the chance. >> guest: yes, i think there is a lot to go around in terms of congress. you know, john boehner, the speaker of the house also should be providing later shipped to ensure the deal gets done. any mention of bob woodward wrote. i believe rob woodward has interviews with john boehner and the president on how last summer we were all complaining about the debt ceiling debate and it just fell flat. once again is that americans pay in the balance while these guys fight about the amount of taxes were going to pay any amount of spending were going to see. again, here we are one year later waiting for this fiscal class. now in terms of apple, apple has been a very successful company and it makes products people want. but let's not forget something. apple is sitting on some $40 billion of cash on the balance sheet. much of that money is ove
